Plurisubharmonic functions in almost complex manifolds. (Fonctions PSH sur une variété presque complexe.) (French. Abridged English version) Zbl 1013.32019
Summary: Let \((M,J)\) be an almost complex manifold. An upper semi-continuous map \(u:(M,J)\to [-\infty,+ \infty[\) is said to be plurisubharmonic if \(u\circ \varphi\) is subharmonic for every pseudo-holomorphic curve: \(\varphi: (\Delta, J_0)\to (M,J)\). By using regularization techniques for currents and Taylor series expansions in suitable coordinates with respect to the structure \(J\), we prove that an upper semi-continuous map \(u:(M,J)\to [-\infty,+ \infty [\) which is not identically equal to \(-\infty\) is plurisubharmonic if and only if the \((1,1)\)-part of \(-dJ^*du\) is (semi-)positive as a current.
